I think the Colorado Lounge is the most impressive set. Perhaps this is because of the five high windows with stained glass and the ceiling beams of at least 22 meters in length. I tried to redraw the pattern of the stained glass windows in CorelDraw.

Like much of the design in the Colorado Lounge, the stained glass windows are designed from the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite.
The artist of the Stained Glass is by Jeanette Dryer Spencer.

Grand Piano

The grand piano was the missing piece of furniture that I waited a long time to make.
What struck me when making it, that there are a kind of what seems to be plastic rings around the wheels.
I don’t know if that’s common on grand pianos, or if Stanley used this to mark the spot.

Stained glass windows

I tried to compose the pattern of the stained glass windows in CorelDraw.
Two sources have been of assistance. Of course screengrabs from the film and the site traveltoeat.com showing some windows from the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite.
These windows were designed by Jeanette Dryer Spencer.

Pool Table

There are a number of pieces of furniture that come back in different sets. Two of them return in the Gamesroom and are the pool table and the rack with cues.

Fireplace

The size of the fireplace is massive. This is clearly visible when Wendy passes it on the way to Jack during the nightmare scene. Wendy is not much taller than the beam over the fireplace. She fits right under it.

Chandeliers

The large chandeliers can be seen in both the Colorado Lounge and the Gold Room.

Carpets

There are quite a few. All with their unique design.

I was always wondering if the whole set would fit a Stage. The Colorado lounge set was built on Stage 3and the dimensions, height, width and length, fit exactly in the original dimensions of Stage 3 (100 x 150 ft).

  1. Incredible! I’ve only just discovered this project today and I’m already a huge fan. If I ever win the lottery I’m gonna build the Overlook Hotel IRL. If there’s any way I can help or be involved with this project do let me know! Keep up the awesome work!

    1. Thanks Ben.
      Same here about winning the lottery. I already know how to connect all the spaces. The Colorado Lounge’s affiliation is still a mystery.
      When I start building, I’ll give you a heads up… 😉

      1. Yeah, the Colorado Lounge is the piece of the puzzle that doesn’t seem to fit anywhere. I’d probably cheat a little bit and somehow connect it to the lobby, so that it’s on the ground floor with everything else. If it were to be built in real life – God help us making the interior work with the Timberline Lodge exterior! 😂
